Ma'aleh Edumim (biblical name from Joshua 9) is situated 7 km east of Jerusalem on the Jerusalem-Dead Sea road. Est. 1975, a municipality since October 1991. 25,000 inh. Mrs. Aliza Aharonson, director of municipal information centre, wrote me on 28 October as follows:

The emblem of Ma'aleh Edumim has not been formally adopted. Israeli municipalities in areas occupied since 1967 cannot register their emblems. The reason is that those areas are not legally part of Israel and according to international law they are governed by decrees of the military commander of the areas. Many Israeli laws are in force in those municipalities when adopted there by the military commander, but the Symbols/Emblems Protection Act of 1974 is not one of them.
